"Computational storage is just beginning to emerge, but the ability to process data at the storage device level to reduce the amount of data that must move between the storage and compute functions will help provide the performance, efficiency, agility, and scalability for next-generation enterprises solutions."</P> IDC Innovators Thu, 15 Aug 2019 04:00:00 GMT Jeff Janukowicz, Eric Burgener IDC Market Glance: Data Protection as a Service, 3Q19 <P>This IDC Market Glance is intended to define and illustrate the component building block of data protection as a service (DPaaS) solutions and the vendors that participate in those building block segments. Data protection as a service is a competitive market made up of three functional markets: backup as a service (BaaS), archive as a service (AaaS), and disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS). These markets differ from other data protection markets that IDC follows (e.g., data protection and recovery software), and the vendors that participate in these functional markets may or may not promote their own intellectual property. Rather, they integrate products from multiple vendors to create a solution sold directly to end-user organizations; few organizations can fill all of the product requirements of the solution by themselves.</P> Market Presentation Thu, 15 Aug 2019 04:00:00 GMT Phil Goodwin, Andrew Smith, Archana Venkatraman IDC:2019中国激光打印机市场——动荡和调整的一年 北京,2019年8月16日——IDC《中国打印机市场季度跟踪报告》显示,自2018年第四季度开始,中国激光打印机市场呈现持续下滑态势。2019年第二季度,激光打印机出货量近247万台,同比下降4.4%。受经济大环境下行及政府政策的影响,用户出于成本控制或观望政策走向的考虑,采购需求有明显下滑。 Research Press Release Thu, 15 Aug 2019 04:00:00 GMT
